Spencer Hospital has been recognized by the American College of Radiology (ACR) as an ACR Designated Lung Cancer Screening Center. “Being an ACR Designated Lung Screening Center signifies that your facility provides these valuable screening services to your community at the highest standards of the radiation profession,” stated Scott Raber, MD, chairman of the Committee on CT Accreditation, in his notification letter to radiologist Dr. Charlie Crouch. Dr. Crouch commented, “Our radiology group appreciates the professional, quality images secured by the diagnostic imaging technologists of Spencer Hospital. The endorsement of the ACR is an additional testament to the high quality provided.”
Lung cancer is the number one leading cause of cancer-related deaths in America, according to the American Lung Association. However, now there’s greater hope for a cure for lung cancer patients as a low-dose CT scan can detect lung cancer early, when it’s more likely to be treatable and curable.
